Key documents which dictate how the Trust operates are the Articles of Association and the Funding Agreements.
Articles of Association
The governance arrangements for Horizons Specialist Academy Trust are laid down in the Articles of Association, which describe the powers of directors and the procedures and rules governing the Board. Attached to the Articles is the Memorandum of Understanding which shows the Department for Education's approval for the establishment of the Trust.
The funding agreement is the contract the Academy Trust has signed with the Secretary of State to become an Academy Trust, and specifies how the Trust is run, its duties and the powers the Secretary of State has over the Trust. The Funding Agreement is the method by which all academies are held accountable to the Department for Education.
